Ever since that greasy cheating drug addict dwarf put England on the plane home I've been happy thinking of Argentina as cheating bastards and wishing them to lose everything.

That was now 20 years ago, Maradonna has lost everything, and now I've just watched the current Argentinian team play I'm suffering a real dilemma - they weren't so greasy, didn't dive much and cut the amateur dramatics down, played some great passes and looked like World Cup winners. It was an enjoyable game and would have been fun even without the six goals. So does this mean I'm over it? What do you all think.

As I posted in I don't like football, I was really impressed by the good sportsmanship displayed by both teams in the game against Ivory Coast. At the time I had no idea there was such contraversy against the team, I was just really impressed by their attitudes.

Then again what do I know. :P

i think it will be time to forgive them when England kick them out of this World Cup, preferably without cheating.

MPI: wrong thread perhaps?

Katz: this is only about football. Steaks are excellent. People are friendly. Great scenery and all that. That is not what is being voted on here :unsure:

I'm surprised nobody from the celtic fringes has piped up yet with a complaint about the use of the word 'Brit' in the title. Obviously most of the Brits who aren't English were well pleased with the hand of god.

To be honest, I'm not that bothered about the hand of god (after all, you could claim that Crouch pulling the guys hair yesterday was just as bad) - its more the fact that the Argies don't much like England that means the feelings are reciprocated

god, yeah - i don't hate Argentina or Argentinian people or indeed anything even remotely Argentinian with the sole exception of the footy team (and even then I kind of liked them on the quiet when Juan Veron was in the team)

i reckon i'm the same as OG, really - I will stop when England get their own back, preferably this year in the final

I personally have no greivance with the Argies, if they're steaks are as good as everyone says, then I want one.

But Mardona and THAT goal, fcuking hate the guy!! :angry: The team at that time were being touted as one of the finest teams ever to play in a final, Maradona himself being compared to Pele, some quarters were saying that he was better.

This man singlehandedly <_< (Ah didnt see the pun before I started to write) and blatantly cheated in a game where Argentina would probably still have won, his other goal was superb. He then went on to destroy his career and blame everyone but himself for it. When he was kicked out of USA 94, he blamed FIFA for it.

Best player in the world? Never!

wow. another forum showing england's inferiority complex. "How long should a Brit hate Argentina". wow. "Forever, never forgive cheats" - hellesangels, that's fantastic. just because you lost a football game, you can't forgive someone... does it hurt so bad?... :D ...the world is having a VERY good time, and you guys somehow aim to pump up your agressions... ;) do you have to prove something? do you want us to see how MIGHTY and POWERFUL you are...well, not on the football pitch, that's for sure after england's performance... let's establish the facts. according to posts in the last couple of weeks at Toytown's discussion board, "brits" or english fans have said they "hate" Argentina, Scotland, Germany, France, the U.S. and Ireland...and they majority in the poll says, you "never" can't forgive argentina...what's wrong with you guys? :ph34r: there is that drug, called prozac, very popular in the u.s., maybe that could bring some relief...? or maybe even more beer...

I don't hate Argentina Raul. As soon as the Argentinian government chops off one of Maradona's hands and sends it to London on a silver plate, all will be forgiven. ;)

I hada badge that said 'Viva Las Malvinas' back in '83 that I made the mistake of wearing to school that earned me a week of detentions :( I've passionately never hated the Argentinians ever since.

On topic: I have had very little interaction with Argentine fans and so I dont really have so much anger towards them. However after watching the England game at the Hoffbrau and having one particular (dirty porno moustache type) German wind me up, they are now on my shit list. And I wish nothing but bad things to happen to their team.

So, how does it feel to be caught in your own web? From one side of your face comes "It is all part of the beautiful game" and then from the other side comes "The ref fucked up and so the other side are cheating bastards and we can never forgive them because the ref fucked up". You guys are being really pathetic.
